Strawberry, Nutella and White Chocolate Cupcakes | The Cupid Bow



It’s National Cupcake Week, did you know? Which gives us all a perfectly good reason to stuff our cake holes silly (no pun intended) with cakey-bakey goodness. In honour of one of those most important weeks of the year for all foodies/foodites/people who just “love a bit of CAKE”, I’ve rustled up some strawberry, nutella and white chocolate cupcakes. They’re full of sugar, chocolate and all things bad, so please don’t expect this to be a dairy-free, vegan-free, all-things-delicious-and-worth-living-for-free recipe… They are cupcakes as cupcakes should be. You’re going to need loads of strawberries, even more white chocolate and lashings and lashings of nutella. I can practically hear you all drooling (which is pretty gross, yet understandable) so here we go – my strawberry, nutella and white chocolate cupcake recipe. Happy drooling!


Ingredients


  • 1 cup/16 tbsps self-raising flour
  • 1cup/4 tbsps cocoa powder
  • 1teaspoon salt
  • 1teaspoon baking soda
  • 1cup/ 8 tbsps unsalted butter
  • 1 cup/16 tbps sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1cup warm milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 100g white chocolate, finely chopped
  • 50-100g Nutella, depending on preference
  • 12 large strawberries

Directions


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Sift together the flour, cocoa powder and baking soda in a large bowl. Add the salt.
  3. Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time. Beat in the butter, milk and vanilla.
  4. Gradually stir the flour mixture into the batter, until just combined.
  5. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 full.
  6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
  7. Chop the white chocolate into very small chunks and put to one side. Chop the strawberries into both small and large pieces.
  8. Once completely cooled, coat each cupcake with Nutella – as much as desired. Place the strawberry pieces onto the top of the cupcakes. With a spoon, scoop up the white chocolate and shake onto the cake.
  9. Finish off by drizzling some extra Nutella on the toppings.
  10. Serve and enjoy the best cupcakes in the world!
